I would like to know if I can move the info on a startup disk to a Sandisk SDHD card and use it for startup if I ever need to? I am ordering a laptop with out a drive and this would save me come coins. That is the only need I have for a drive.
Thanks, Jerry

I don't know, I am assuming it is on a CD. I haven't bought a laptop yet, just looking.

I'm not sure about a Sandisk SDHD card. However, some newer computers do support booting from a USB device (such as a pen drive). This will achieve what you want I think.
